Only four rounds, not projecting records, FA, etc. just yet.

Round One: Tony Jefferson [S; Oklahoma]
I've had my eye on him for a while now, and quite frankly I'm getting tired of Morgan Burnett not being the safety that he was when he was next to Nick Collins. Tony Jefferson is an absolute playmaker in the secondary, and has a nose for the ball. Despite being a bit "smallish" for a safety, he plays much bigger than he actually is and is a very willing tackler in run support. But he's even better in the air where he's got eight career interceptions.

Round Two: Chase Thomas [OLB/ILB; Stanford]
I really like this kid a lot and I think a lot of GMs will love the player, but not the athlete and I think he's going to fall down. And maybe I'm in the minority, but I'd love to kick him inside and see how well he'd play there. He's solid in coverage, and a better pass rushers than the numbers would indicate. I think he'd be a dynamite inside linebacker.

Round Three: Stepfan Taylor [RB; Stanford]
Another double dipping into the Cardinal backyard, and this is for a really good running back. Taylor's not a real flashy back, but he keeps his legs moving and picks up those tough extra yards. I don't think he'll ever be a star in the NFL, but I think he can be a thousand yard rusher for several years which makes him well worth this pick.

Round Four: Stedman Bailey [WR; West Virginia]
The other Mountaineers receiver might get overlooked on draft day for the more explosive Tavon Austin, but Bailey is a very good receiver in his own right. He's explosive and a threat to score every time he touches the ball.

Love both the Stanford guys, I just don't know how much value a 2nd round pick at LB has. He could be a good 3rd rotational guy in the shorter term future but Hawk and Bishop are both locked up fairly long term. That's a guy that makes it tempting though.

Love Taylor for the Packers. He could be a real 3 down guy.

I still love my Chase Thomas. I think he ends up in round 1. And yeah, I'd love to see him inside. He's already a special team demon. DJ Smith showed us he isn't a starter and he's got the injury. Bishop is coming off injury, and Hawk has been down in years past. Thomas would be our third best ILB and third best OLB. It gives you a pick of Bishop or Hawk down the road and a ton of help immediately. Not to mention if Clay walks, or Perry busts.

Not sure why you mentioned Burnett out of our safeties. Keep in mind he's got nothing next to him and Nick Collins took 4 years before he got it. I think he's been pretty great this year. It's the Strong Safety we have issues with.

Taylor looked like Eddie George running against Oregon. I wouldn't mind taking him because it would signal a swing in philosophy and our record when running more than 25 times is undefeated.

With that swing, I don't enderstand why another WR in the 4th.

I need to know if your keeping Jennings and what the Center is.

dont like that at all since the only one that isnt for added depth is running back and im not too big on taylor just kind of whatever on him

like thomas alot but i dont think we should spend a second round pick on OLB

would be really dissapointed if we didnt spend one of our first 4 picks on some kind of a lineman

I find it hard to believe that we won't add depth to our offensive front early in the draft (center, most notably). But that safety pick could be valuable to our secondary going forward (Hayward, House, Shields, Tramon, and Burnett). I just don't know about the value. I see a great ILB or C as being far more valuable to this team right now, but in terms of value by position and draft slot, you can make a case for him.

I'd argue Jordy is probably around the 30th-40th best receiver in the NFL, maybe 50th.
